This morning I read a stat in a devotional and it really took me back.
'In 2010, slightly more than ONE out of THREE adults 45 and over reported being chronically lonely. A decade earlier, only one out of five said that.'
In a world where we are constantly connected you'd think we'd never be lonely. But sadly this is not the case. The evidence is that people feel alone. This should not be happening. We have hope!
fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10
We as the church have the answer, this is why God created the church. COMMUNITY! We need to be inviting people into this community. What we have needs to be broadcast all over the place. Today find someone you think is lonely and show them some friendship. Show them love. Show them JESUS!
You never know where it might take them. You just might change the world!
